Doing Good for Our Communities and Our Planet
Employees from 20 sites around the world proudly wore their green volunteer t-shirts for the 3rd Annual AMD Cares Day of Service. 1,600 employees volunteered for more than 67 projects benefiting the community. For the second year, Day of Service coincided with Earth Week. Combining our company’s passion for volunteerism and environmental sustainability is a great way to show that AMD cares about our local communities and the planet at large.
Many sites chose environmentally friendly projects such as beach clean-ups, litter collection, tree plantings, park beautification and maintenance, recycling campaigns, sustainable farming, and more.
Others selected activities focused on eradicating hunger, improving the lives of the elderly and disabled, and orphaned children, assembling educational kits, and promoting health and well-being.
We all lead busy lives and AMD Cares Day of Service is a great reminder of just how valuable our time, talents and money are, especially when they benefit our local communities. That is why, in 2017, the AMD Foundation generously provided $70,000 in charitable grants to several global environmental nonprofit organizations chosen by our employees in Canada, China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and the United States. These investments will be used to support a variety of projects focused on carbon reduction, habitat preservation, and environmental education. These organizations are incredibly valuable to the community and we are proud to support their work.
